Remote lab

Remote Laboratory is a service, which enable students to access the laboratory equipment and execute remote operations to carry out exercises. The main goal of RL was implementation of instant feedback from remote mother E2LP board in a way that user would operate with the real board as if it was connected locally. This functionality was a purpose to develop the GUI web interface of E2LP board front panel that exactly reflects the real board, which has connections to real signals from the real board.

The main advantage of proposed E2LP RL framework (Figure below) is a possibility for students to interact with the real E2LP platform interfaces, implemented as a web services in Moodle and work with software applications, on the same operational level like they are actually operating the same tools and instruments in classic lesson in laboratory.
